Multidimensional polarization dynamics in US election data in the long term (2012–2020) and in the 2020 election cycle

Alejandro Dinkelberg, Caoimhe O'Reilly, Pádraig MacCarron, Paul J. Maher, Michael Quayle
2021 Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy  
For each, a bipartite projection generates a network where edges represent similarity in responses between dyads. The data provide us with preidentified groups (Republicans and Democrats).  ...  We use them as our network communities and to calculate an edge-based polarization. Results show bifurcation progressively increasing, with a striking increase from 2016 to 2020.  ...  A lower score indicates a higher polarization in the network because there are less bridging edges in relation to the overall number of edges.  ...

Disentangling positive and negative partisanship in social media interactions using a coevolving latent space network with attractors model [article]

Xiaojing Zhu, Cantay Caliskan, Dino P. Christenson, Konstantinos Spiliopoulos, Dylan Walker, Eric D. Kolaczyk
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We develop a broadly applicable class of coevolving latent space network with attractors (CLSNA) models, where nodes represent individual social actors assumed to lie in an unknown latent space, edges  ...  Moreover, while positive partisanship is the driving force of interactions across the full periods of study for both the public and Democratic elites, negative partisanship has come to dominate Republican  ...  Polarization & Drawing Edges in Social Media Networks We note in the manuscript and expand here that we recognize that the choice of edge construction can be consequential in studies of polarization.  ...

Spheres of legislation: polarization and most influential nodes in behavioral context

Andrew C. Phillips, Mohammad T. Irfan, Luca Ostertag-Hill
2021 Computational Social Networks  
AbstractGame-theoretic models of influence in networks often assume the network structure to be static.  ...  First, how do we identify different contexts and learn the corresponding network structures using real-world data? We focus on the U.S.  ...  We are also thankful to the anonymous reviewers of COMPLEX NETWORKS 2019 and the COSN journal for many helpful suggestions.  ...

Identifying opinion-based groups from survey data: a bipartite network approach [article]

Pádraig MacCarron, Paul J. Maher, Michael Quayle
2020 arXiv   pre-print
A survey can be represented by a bipartite network as it has two types of nodes, participants and items in which participants can only interact with items.  ...  We introduce an agreement threshold to take a minimal projection of the participants linked by shared responses in order to identify opinion-based groups.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank James Glesson, David O'Sullivan and Susan Fennell for discussions about the creation of the model.  ...

Network Analysis of Migration Patterns in the United States [chapter]

Travis Goldade, Batyr Charyyev, Mehmet Hadi Gunes
2017 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
This paper attempts to utilize complex network analysis to gain a better understanding of the migration patterns in the US, and how it evolves over the time.  ...  In particular, we analyze migration patterns in the US during differing times of the economic prosperity of the housing boom (i.e., 2004-2007) and the recession (i.e., 2008-2011) through complex network  ...  The network is constructed between counties, where the directed weighted edges represent the population that has migrated from one county to another.  ...

Inferring the Ideological Affliations of Political Committees via Financial Contributions Networks

Yiran Chen, Hanming Fang
2017 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper we propose and implement a novel Bayesian approach to infer about the ideological affiliations of political committees based on the network of the financial contributions among them.  ...  Using the posterior mode to categorize the ideological affiliations of the political committees, our estimates match the self reported ideology for 94.36% of those committees who self reported to be Democratic  ...  In the first specification, the network edge formation patterns and the network size imply a CH divergence of 1.0074, and we find that the misclassification rate is on average 1.10%.  ...
